1) NETFLIX AND CHILL



•Oversized red and blue sweaters
•Transfer paper
•Snowflake images
•Snowflake stick-on stickers

Start off with the blue sweater. Type on a computer document Chill and print it out on some transfer paper. Make sure that you like the font and chose the right size.

3 DIY FOOD RELATED HALLOWEEN COSTUME IDEAS I NEON DOTS

Hey neonators, it's neon dots here. If you are lazy like me, you would wait until the last minute to check to see if the costume that you want is in stock, and by the time you look, it isn't, so I am going to show you guys three really cute and easy DIY costume ideas that you can recreate, so let's get started!

1) POPCORN



•Tissues
•Glue gun
•Yellow paint
•Sponge brush
•Tight white skirt
•Red fabric paint
•Painters tape

Crumble up some tissues and glue the edges together so they stay in place. With either half or 3/4 of the tissues you have, paint them yellow and wait until they dry. Glue them onto your shirt. Afterward, take your skirt and place your painters tape vertically. In the white spaces, take your red fabric paint and start painting. After the fabric paint has dried (you will want to follow any specific instructions as well if required) take paint off, and you have the cutest costume ever!

OCTOBER FAVORITES I NEON DOTS

Hey neonators, it's neon dots here, and today I am going to be showing you guys my October favorites. You guys probably know by now that I typically get caught up in school work, and I know that I won't have time to write this post when the end of October rolls around because of finals for my first trimester of school, so I am doing it now, so let's get started.

1) PSL



For some unknown reason, this year, I am really into PSL's. Last year I had one and I was done. I didn't hate it, but I didn't love it, so I tried it again this year and honestly I cannot stop drinking them.

2) TURTLENECKS



Turtlenecks are so adorable and can make an outfit really cute. I love how you can tuck it into a skirt and make it a more formal school look or even add some jeans with it, booties, and tie your hair up in a loose bun. Shoutout to my best friend Madison for wearing the cutest turtleneck today with her jeans and knee-high boots. So cute!

3) APPLE CIDER



Apple cider is the best! …

DIY BINDER LABEL CARDS I NEON DOTS

Hey neonators, it's neon dots here. Today I wanted to show you how you can make your own DIY binder label cards. They are seriously so simple and easy to make, and I swear, once you make one or more of them, you cannot stop. I spent all night making labels for my binders, and the great thing is, you can customize them, so let's get started!



(Example)

•Index cards
•Colorful pens
•Washi Tape
•Scissors

Cut out two short strips of washi tape and two long strips, and place them at the edges of the card. You can label your cards for days of the week, as shown up above, or anything else. These are so cute and you can, like I said again, personalize them.

If you decide to make any of these, use the #lookneondots on Instagram or Snapchat, and tag me in all of your photos or DM me. My social media accounts will be linked down below. Sorry this post is a bit short, but I will see you tomorrow. Kisses to my neonators.

XOXO,

TOP 5 THINGS TO DO DURING FALL I NEON DOTS

Hey neonators, it's neon dots here. Today I am going to share some ideas with you guys on what you can do during fall. Fall is an amazing time because there is so many things to do, however, we sometimes don't think about doing to much, especially if you're in school and have to study for exams, so here are some things you should do before fall ends!

1) DRINK HOT CHOCOLATE NEAR THE FIREPLACE



What doesn't say fall/winter vibes more than cuddling up in a blanket near the fireplace, reading a book and drinking hot cocoa?! This is seriously my favorite thing to do during fall.

2) TAKE TUMBLR PICTURES WITH YOUR FRIENDS



I would find a wooded area with your friends and take a couple polaroids. I love having mini photo shoots and especially when fall is around, it makes it extremely cute.

3) GOING TO A CORN MAZE/PUMPKIN PATCH/HAY RIDE



I don't know about you guys, but typically in California, all of the fall-like basic activities like picking out pumpkins, doing a corn maze…

5 WAYS TO TAKE CARE OF ANXIETY I NEON DOTS

Hey neonators, it's neon dots here. I am so sorry for being gone for so long. Today I am prewriting many blog posts for you guys because I luckily finally have the time too, so for, hopefully a week, you will be seeing a post every day or every other day. Anyways, I wanted to show you guys some tips on how I take care of my anxiety.

I personally have anxiety because I feel the need that I have to do everything that I want to do. If my brain has the mindset that I have to do something, I can't do anything but think about that one thing. I also get anxiety on many other things, and I want you guys to know that it is completely normal. I wanted to share with you all some ways on how I fix my anxiety attacks. Let's get started!

1) LISTENING TO MUSIC

I am a music lover. When I was a kid, I used to play piano for six years, and now I play guitar, which I have been playing for two years. I honestly think that music can make me relax and take a break from things. Even if I study, …
